Latest consumer inflation expectations released by the BOE

- Inflation five-years ahead seen at 3.6% (unchanged from May)
- 58% of UK public expects BOE to raise rates over the next year
The headline measures inflation expectations over the next 12 months. I think the more interesting point of note here is that majority of households still see the BOE raising rates further over the next year. The 58% recorded here is higher than the 51% in May.
